Hi All,

I am a 69 year old widow with a large portfolio mostly in RRSPs and it is all equities with about 150K liquid.
The majority of the fund came from my deceased husband DB Pension which I took as a lump sum.

I too am a novice at investing and look forward to reading and joining this community.

I am unsure which to take the RIF or LIF as I am coming close to the mandatory withdrawal with big tax implications.

welcome to the forum Alex

those are my fave activities too although i don't camp any longer, i've grown too fond of fresh clean sheets, hot showers & the occasional ice cube in summertime (van camping is not real camping imho) (i'm talking wild camping w nothing but a tent & tiny one-burner fuel stove if u are lucky)

New Member self-introduction

Hello fellow members!

I want to start by saying "thank you" - I stumbled across this site in my search results the other day when I was trying to figure out what type of tax hike I would face if I move my Permanent Residence from Alberta to BC. The discussion gave me a lot of information, and I appreciate the fact that, as a non-member, I was allowed to see it and follow the links that the members suggested.

I decided to join because I'm going to be retiring one year from now... and I have a small DB plan and a horribly underperforming DC plan that is mostly Canadian TD-ETF's. Yes, over the years I could have rebalanced it to include more US and International ETF's, but I didn't.

I'm not sure that now is the time to buy more International, or what the proportions should be, but I hope to learn. Fast. :) I'll try to figure out the appropriate forums in which to pose my questions.
